Would someone please advise if R93.49 is appropriate to use as a dx when a pelvic MRI has been ordered for fibroids vs uterine didelphys. I don't believe we should be using fibroids or didelphys as the indication. Am I wrong?

Thank you so much for your assistance!

MRI of Pelvic

Indications for a Pelvic MRI:
For location or evaluation of undescended testes in adults and in children, including determination of location of testes, where ultrasound has been done previously
To provide an alternative to follow-up of an indeterminate pelvic CT when previous CT/ultrasound was equivocal and needed to clarify a finding a CT could not
For evaluation and characterization of uterine and adnexal masses, (e.g., fibroids, ovaries, tubes and uterine ligaments), or congenital anomaly where ultrasound has been done previously
For evaluation of uterus prior to embolization
For evaluation of endometriosis
Prior to uterine surgery if there is abnormality suspected on prior US (e.g., bicornuate uterus)
For evaluation of known or suspected abnormality of the fetus noted on prior imaging and no prior pelvis MRI
